StopTrik International Film Festival is dedicated to stop motion techniques of hand-made, spatial animation as puppet film, claymation, object or photography manipulation, animation of loose materials (such as salt, sand etc), pixilation, traditional cut-out and many more. The list of sub-genres could be complemented with such exceptional techniques as animation of lights, fire, yarns, threads. Artists' imagination is limitless and so we can be neither orthodox nor strict while defining the term "stop motion". The ultimate goal of this unique annual gathering is to admire and celebrate artistry of hand-made, spatial animation together with all the other drifters of the surreal, absurd or merry highways who are ready to pursue frame by frame illusion.

Koyaa - Wild Sunbed/ Koyaa ‒ divji ležalnik

Kolja Saksida (ZVVIKS)

2017, SLO, 2'45''


It's a hot summer day and Koyaa wants to relax in his sunbed. As usual, Mr. Raven is busy building a birdhouse, this time from straw. Koyaa lies down, shielding his face from the sun. Suddenly, the sunbed snaps closed, trapping Koyaa inside, then spitting him out like a cannonball, towards the cliff where he barely manages to hang on to a vine! Koyaa weaves a lasso from the plant, but instead of catching the sunbed, he takes a rodeo on its back. It seems like he needs another brilliant idea.

Na poletni dan si Koyaa zaželi počitka na ležalniku. Krokar je kot običajno zatopljen v izdelavo nove ptičje hišice, tokrat iz slame. Koyaa se uleže, z dlanjo si zakrije obraz pred močnim soncem. Ležalnik se nepričakovano zapre in tesno stisne Koyoo, potem pa se nenadoma odpre, da Koyaa kot iz topa poleti proti skalni steni, kjer se oprime ovijalke, da ne pade. Iz ovijalke oblikuje laso, ujame ležalnik, a ta ga potegne, da jezdi na njem kot na rodeu. Koyoo lahko reši le premišljeno ukrepanje.
